About the School

The turbulence of modern world used to be displayed in the VUCA acronym: volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. It appeared to be partly for the reason of the pace of technological advancement. That is why we need to care about the proper formation of the new leaders’ generation who will be in charge of the important decisions over technologies. The essential part of this formation is the awareness of the ethical principles as well as the historical experience of humanity. We will provide the opportunity for reflection and amplify the ability of strategic thinking. The program of School is created with the goal to provide the basic understanding of the technologies and scientific inventions that underlay the innovations. Another aim is to develop the ability of long-term planning, risk estimation, and proper understanding of the end goal of technologies advancement. The discourse of technology has to take a part in the political agenda not only when it is convenient for politicians or when the social requests are detected.  On the contrary, the technological impact deserves to be discussed both politicians and representatives of science and business.  There is the cooperation for more entire (that means better) understanding of these challenges.
